The City of Sevierville Public Works Department announces leaf collection will begin on Monday, October 19, 2020 and is scheduled to conclude January 29, 2021. This date may be adjusted if warranted by weather conditions.
Residents may choose either of the following leaf collection alternatives. Please read each alternative carefully and direct any questions you may have to the Public Works Department at 429-4567.
Bagged Leaf Collection
The Public Works Department will collect bagged leaves, along with other bagged yard waste, during bulk rubbish/junk collection on a bi-weekly basis. Residents may call 429-4567 and request a work order be completed or simply place bags at curbside. NO SPECIAL PICKUPS WILL BE MADE.
Vacuum Leaf Collection
The Public Works Department will make every effort to be in your neighborhood every two weeks to vacuum loose leaves. During peak periods or equipment breakdown pickup may take longer. The City has been divided into three sections. Once crews make a complete sweep of the City they will start over and make another complete sweep. This method of collection will be used throughout the leaf collection season. NO SPECIAL PICKUPS WILL BE MADE.
Tips for Vacuum Leaf Collection:
Rake leaves in rows no more than 3 feet wide. Do not park vehicles in front of leaf piles; leaf piles that are blocked will not be collected until the service truck returns to the area as scheduled and the leaf piles are no longer blocked.
Remove limbs, rocks, and other debris; leaf piles mixed with other materials will not be collected until the service truck returns to the area as scheduled and the leaf piles are separated.
Do not place leaves in street.
If you have any questions regarding leaf collection, please contact the Public Works Department at 429-4567.
